I am a native of North Carolina, growing up in the Raleigh/Durham area and started coming to the beaches of Oak Island at a very young age. I specialize in the listing, selling, and marketing of coastal new construction properties. I primarily focus on real estate in the Southport, Oak Island, and the surrounding areas.
I began an Oak Island Real Estate Company in October, 2003 and went quickly to the #1 real estate company in sales in Brunswick County. I attribute the success I have had in always doing the right thing by everyone around me. I am the proud mother of 3 beautiful children-Joshua, Haylee, and Ashleigh. It is always an honor to assist my clients in building their real estate dreams.

Vacationing on the beaches of Brunswick County as a child, are some of the best memories of my childhood. As an adult I still continued to vacation here and also met my husband of 23 years.

We decided to move to Oak Island permanently and now I am excited to bring my 15 years of full time real estate knowledge to Oak Island and the Brunswick County market. I look forward to working with both Buyers and Sellers, to insure a professional transaction experience.
